Summary: This Hero2 model is brighter and a bit more crisp than the new Silver edition even though they both have the SAME guts and resolution specs, the H2 is cheaper, better and has less problems than the new H3 Silver, go figure...
Summary: Love this camera. Have taken it 60ft deep scuba diving, well below freezing snowboarding, dropped on the concrete, surfing, and strapped it to an AK 47. It has performed flawless, and captures some really awesome video. I'd buy another without hesitating.
Summary: I had the GoPro HD but I can not find it so I figured I will get a new one. I got the GoPro 2 Outdoors package. I did not want to jump up to GoPro 3 but if you have the extra money that would be good as the WiFi is built into the device and overall it is in a smaller size. I found the menu screen has improved over the HD. Still a green/grayish display but the contrast is improved.
Summary: My GF got this for my birthday to capture downhill longboard vids. Quality is decent, the menus are not. They are f****ing awful, forget about changing settings quickly on the go, which should be easy considering it's an action camera. Once you get it functioning, it's quite good, comes with plenty accessories/mounts, and photos look great for such a little and durable camera!
Summary: wont turn on used it about ten times . look on youtube there are way to many problems with the gopro.Says to update but wont work on older software.I Never will recomend this camera to anyone ,stay away!!!
Do NOT upgrade the software from GoPro site or you trash it.

Summary: The camera worked fine until I upgraded the software per GoPro's site recommendation. These things "brick" once you do that. Google "gopro freeze after update" to read more but get the word out... DON'T update the software! GoPro won't fix this either so there's a class action law suit started since THEIR software update destroyed the camera's of tens of thousands of people.
Summary: I'll preface this by saying I'm not a filmmaker and aside from my iPhone 4s I have no experience with shooting video or pictures. So far I've found the GoPro camera to be very easy to use and very fun! I bought this camera specifically for 30 minute flight in a WWII B17 Flying Fortress that I just recently went on.
Summary: Now that I have had time to use my gopro I am very satisfied great video and pics comes with plenty of mounts.Would not read on my old computer with windows xp so I did have to purchase a brand new laptop but was rounding the bend on that also, well worth the money.
